All of these functions are contained within a single, integrated system. Autocue CTO Neil Hutchins said, “We can now offer the broadest, most flexible and most cost-effective end-to-end workflow or ‘studio-in-a-box’ and Unlike other all-in-one solutions, our modular, software-based system allows us to include only the elements that are required for a particular workflow, and also to distribute the control functions across a number of workstations. This means we can cater for smaller TV and cable stations with a single operator, or spread the production out over many machines so that, for example, a classroom of students can all work together on a live show – with each taking control of an individual technical element.” For those not attending the show, or unable to watch it live, all live and previous shows can be viewed at 14 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE TV-BAY074FEB13.indd 14 11/02/2013 16:59
